What a delightful discovery and find, especially for an European city. Hotel Preciados has met our expectations and then some. It is charming, quaint and first class without being pretentious. The location is central to the historic center city, yet removed from the noisy Gran Via traffic and from the major plazas. The rooms are roomy, well appointed, quiet and up to date. A nice touch is the complementary mini bar and wifi. Our reception upon arrival was warm and friendly......and the staff helpful I'm so many ways. Even the hotel bar and restaurant are attractive, with an excellent menu. If you enjoy being tastefully spoiled, this should be your destination of choice. If possible, request the superior room with balcony on the fifth floor....the roof top views are fantastic.

Again, we made this hotel choice after scouring Tripadvisor. Again, our reviewers got it pretty right! The Preciados Hotel is in a superb location. Easy walking distance to hundreds of local eateries, tapas bars, cafes and plenty of great shops. Easy walk also to Placca del Sol, Placca de Mayor, the theatre district, Corte Inglese department store and two main metro stations.
We were greeted at the desk by the lovely, charming and most helpful Christina, who with grace and speed told us all about the hotel, it's locale and pointed out on a map, all the great Madrid sights of interest. A very cheery bell boy (older gentleman) showed us to our room. We'd booked a superior room in the newer part of the hotel that included a free minibar (1 x beeer, nibblies, juice and soft drink). The one outstanding feature - or actually two, were the bright red poles in our room's entrance and bathroom, plus a lighting feature we discovered by mistake...changeable brightly coloured room lights... Funky but fun I guess! The decor enjoyed cool artwork and a very comfy bed. The tiny double glazed balcony was a great addition plus there were many power and usb outlets around the room as well. Smallish room, but met your every need. The restaurant attached to the hotel was really excellent particularly for breakfast - HUGE, varied, colourful and fresh. Pretty reasonable for 16Euro pp. All in all, a great base in a seriously historic and beautiful city! The absolutely essential first step in any new city is a trip on the 'Big Red Bus'. The bus stop for this was also just around the corner from the Preciados!

Room Tip: Choose a room with a street side balcony. Great ambience and quiet enough with the doors closed.

We stayed here for 3 nights in April 2013. The hotel is very nice and located in the center of Madrid. We arrived from the Atocha Renfe High Speed Train and found this location off of the Calleo metro stop just a few meters away from the hotel. The staff is very friendly and spoke English to us when we arrived. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We were given Chocolates on our first night and our room was stocked with a complimentary mini bar. We decided to take the hop on hop off bus tour and the hotel even sold us tickets at the reception desk at the front of the hotel lobby. The room was very nice, the bathroom was very nice with tub and shower, bidet, toilet and nice towels. Our room was restocked every day, mini bar and bathroom included. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a beautiful hotel in Madrid that is reasonably priced and comfortable.

Room Tip: We had a room on the 4th floor with a street view and balcony. It was very quiet at night. The bathr...

Being so highly rated, I came to this place for a long weekend with my wife a little apprehensive, could it really be that good?
Well, yes actually, it is that good - from check in to departure, it was a great experience, measured in my book by 3 critical factors:
1 - Can I get the room dark and quiet enough to sleep
2 - Does it have free WiFi
3 - Does it have a decent shower
I accept this is not everyone's criteria, but having travelled for years on business and pleasure, if a hotel ticks these boxes I've generally had a good stay.
Again, a resounding yes to all of these, most surprising for the really central location on a busy pedestrian (and some cars) street in the heart of the city, was the sound proofing.
Our third floor room (305, very nice) overlooked the street with a small balcony, but two sets of double glazed doors and at night, you can bring down electric shutters, amazingly quiet!
Not fussed about breakfast, with over 3,000 Tripadvisor listed places to eat, the hotel seems cheating a bit really, we found some lovely little places locally at half the cost.
This place has earned its' high rating and I would not only recommend it, but would come back again in a heartbeat.

We stayed at this hotel for 3 nights in April 2013. The staff was very friendly. We had a 5th floor room with a balcony and a beautiful view of the Old Madrid skyline! Everything was great. The only thing that could be better: the mattress was a little too firm for me. My husband thought it was OK. I had a hard time sleeping comfortably. The food and service in the restaurant was excellent. You can also sit in the bar area and sample their tapas with a glass of wine or a (great) cup of coffee. We could easily walk to the Old Town or be right on the Gran Via. The location is perfect with a short walk to Callao metro or to Del Sol.

General: I would, without a doubt, stay at the Hotel Preciados again. Our room: 506, king bed, with balcony

Good: Comfortable firm bed. High ceiling. Private balcony with double glass doors. No street noise or noise from other rooms. Shower water pressure strong. Staff friendly and very helpful. Towels are thick and soft. The central location felt very safe.

Minor Annoyances: The description showed a laundry and I mistakenly thought the room included a washer/dryer. I believe that they either mean Laundry Service (at an additional charge) or that the room comes with towels and sheets. No big deal, but I would have brought more clothes. Curtains don't keep out all of the light. Internet requires logging back in with a password everytime after leaving the hotel and every morning.

Comments: King bed is two mattresses pushed together. Saw some photos and was worried that there would be a hard edge in the middle of the bed. I just felt a small depression in the middle of the bed, but no discomfort. The skylight in the bath has an electric blind for added privacy.

Oddity: Toilet dings like an elevator arriving when flushed.

We recently spent four nights in this hotel, occupying a fourth floor standard room on a bed and breakfast basis.
The check-in was carried out quickly and efficiently. We were provided with information on the hotel and maps of the city and told to come back to reception at any time if we had any queries or required more information. Our luggage was taken to our room and the porter outlined details of the room and gave advice as to how to operate the air-con, TV,etc. The room, whilst not overly large, was comfortable and nicely furnished. There was adequate wardrobe space but the shelf and drawer space was, for us, only enough for a few days stay - we have a booked a longer stay in June and have reserved a larger/superior room with more storage space. A nice extra was the complimentary beer and soft drink mini-bar. The bathroom was of a good size and well equipped. The housekeeping service was excellent and everywhere a very standard of cleanliness was evident.
The breakfast buffet offered a wide selection of hot and cold items and staff were always there to help if needed.
We did not eat in the restaurant but used the bar most evenings for drinks and/or tapas. The service we found professional, courteous and helpful and the quality of the tapas first class.
We have no hesitation in grading Hotel Preciados as "Very Good". Overall it seemed to us to offer more, including value for money, than other four star city hotels we have stayed in.
Finally, the location is great - within walking distance of most places of interest and close to at least a couple of Metro stations.
We shall recommend it to our friends and are ourselves returning in June.
